All you need to know about corrective make up

 

It is a well known fact that women are rarely satisfied with their appearance. Always, standing in front of the mirror, finding something that could be changed, whether it be it in the face or body.. There are very few if any women that could say for sure that they  would not like to change absolutely anything on them. In many cases, make up may be our best allied. If there are features that you would like to alter on your face, then you have come to the right place. Make up can do wonders when it comes to concealing the “defects” of the face.   Example : If you have big eyes:   The best way to drag the attention from your large, prominent eyes, is to use dark shades of eyeshadows, and eye pencils for outlining the contours of the eyes. You should definitely avoid using bright eyeshadows.   For daily make up, use a neutral eyeshadow that is two shades darker than your complexion. Apply the shadow on the lids of your eyes, and outline your eyes with a black or dark brown eye pencil.  Do not make it look like a stricted line, use a make up brush to create smooth lines. Outline the bottom of the eye, and finish with mascara for lash volume. Do not use a mascara that lengthens the lashes.       Example : If you have small eyes:   Make up can help to visually increase the size of small eyes, but only if properly adorned. If you have dark circles around the eyes, you should start with concealing them first. Cover them with concealer with a yellow base, to neutralise it. If you are dealing with this problem, and do not take corrective action with the application of your make up, dark circles will make your eyes look even  smaller than they really are. To emphasise the small eyes, choose shades that contrast the colour of your eyes. For example, if you have blue eyes, use brown shades to achieve that look of larger and more prominent eyes. Purple shades suits great for brown eyes. Tip: If you have small eyes, never use eyeshadows that are of the same colour as the colour of your eyes. Also, avoid using dark shadows, because they visually make eyes look smaller.   Apply white shadows on the inside of the eyelid and darker shades on the outside. Outline your eyes with a dark eye pencil, and make sure that the line is thin. For better effects, continue with outlining a little further from the outer corners of the eye.   Mascara does wonders for small eyes.Be sure to apply more mascara on the lashes than the outside corner of the eye.         Example :  If you have a big nose:   Use additional powder, that is two shades darker than your complexion, to conceal defects of the nose.   If you have a thick nose, apply the darker powder on both sides of the nose, to make it visually look slimmer. Then, apply the powder that you usually use, that suits your complexion on the middle of your nose.   If you want to make your nose visually look shorter, you should apply the darker powder under ( on the end of ) nose, and in the upper part of the nose. Use the brighter powder on the middle part of the nose.   You should make sure that there is no visible border between the darker and brighter shade of powder.  Apply the powder little by little.         Example: If you have thin lips:    Use a lip pencil that is same colour as the colour of your lips,  for more natural appearance, or the same colour as the lipstick that you are planing to put on later. Always use lipstick in bright colours. If you use dark colours, you will end up with the opposite effect of what you wanted, i.e. your lips will look even thinner.   Outline the contours of your lips, but do not get out of the line.The Pencil should pass along the line where the lips are prominent within the face. After outlining, put lipstick, and then apply a lip gloss in the middle of the upper and lower lips. Finally, apply a little lip gloss with a golden glow in the middle of the lower lip. Glitter will emphasise your lips and make it visually look bigger and fuller.     Feel free to share your comments, personal opinion , experience, tips, or anything that is related to the themes we cover.
